Butt Implants/ Augmentation in McAllen, TX

*Model. Not an actual patient.

Enhancing the contour of the butt can be difficult, even with a dedicated exercise routine. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we offer butt implants to patients who would like to achieve optimal gluteal contour. We welcome patients from McAllen, the Rio Grande Valley, Brownsville, and all of South Texas.

What Are Butt Implants?

Butt implants, also called butt augmentation or gluteal implants, are a popular cosmetic procedure that enhances the contour and shape of the buttocks. Genetics and exercise play a large role in the development of the butt, meaning that a patient’s desired look can sometimes be out of reach without implants. Presently, surgical options for gluteal contour enhancement include: liposuction alone, liposuction with fat transfer (i.e. the Brazilian butt lift), gluteal implants, or posterior body lift procedures. Each surgical approach has specific indications, advantages and limitations.

Why Choose RGV for Butt Implants?

Dr. Filiberto Rodriguez of RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center is a nationally recognized gluteal augmentation specialist, using liposuction and fat transfer for qualified patients and gluteal implants when indicated. Dr. Rodriguez uses a refined technique to place gluteal implants in the proper position protected inside the thick gluteal muscle, which creates a beautiful and natural contour and minimizes implant sagging or rotation. Only one vertical incision between the butt cheeks is created, thus the resulting scar is virtually invisible, eliminating any evidence. Dr. Rodriguez is also an expert on botched silicone butt injections. He is nationally recognized as one of the most experienced and qualified surgeons in revision treatments regarding butt injections and implants.

How Do Butt Implants Work?

The goal of most women is to achieve a full and perky butt to balance the proportions of their body. For those women who exercise and cannot achieve the butt they want, gluteal implants offer an excellent option. At RGV Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Center, we use a special type of FDA-approved silicone implants, which are specifically designed for gluteal augmentation. These implants are very similar to the silicone implants used for breast augmentation. Gluteal implants are designed to last a lifetime, providing extremely consistent results without the risk of fat graft loss. The modern, highly cohesive silicone implants used for gluteal augmentation are designed to feel like a muscle, and properly sized implants placed in the intramuscular position feel very natural.

Where Are Butt Implants Placed?

Dr. Rodriguez is an expert in the modern surgical procedure for gluteal implants. Unlike breast implants, which are often placed under the pectoralis muscle, gluteal implants are placed within the thick gluteus maximus muscle. This provides excellent coverage for the implant, prevents the implant from sagging over time, and protects the sciatic nerve from injury. The intramuscular placement gives an extra layer of coverage, so the implant feels more natural to the touch and has a nicer shape. In addition, the additional tissue coverage protects the implant from infection.

What is Recovery Like Following a Butt Implant Procedure?

Patients report surprisingly little pain after gluteal implant surgery, although bruising and swelling may persist for as long as three weeks after surgery. Patients should be prepared for two to four weeks of bed rest, although it is important to minimize sitting during this time, as it can have a negative impact on your results and recovery. Walking is encouraged in the weeks following surgery, as it can help promote normal blood flow. Light activities and work can be resumed approximately one to two weeks after treatment.

How Much Do Butt Implants Cost?
